Robin Gibb

We are very sad to learn of the death of Robin Gibb of the wonderful Bee Gees. It sometimes seemed as though Robin felt that the Bee Gees were under-appreciated compared with some of their contemporaries, the ubiquity of their disco-era songs seeming to be more of an issue than the beauty and sexiness of their music. But the Bee Gees have a catalogue rich with five decades of hits that is a testament to their songwriting and performing genius. Robin's unusual high voice expressed a heartfelt longing and a human frailty. Harmonising with his brothers, magic was created – the original and gorgeous vocal sound that made the Bee Gees so famous and has echoed around the world since the 1960s. The Bee Gees have always been a big inspiration for us and we send our love and respect to Robin's family. xx
